About us

Paperny Entertainment has been producing compelling non-fiction television for over 20 years, and continues to fiercely push the envelope with groundbreaking ideas and approaches. Many of our programmes now include new media components to enhance viewership and audience participation.

Since 1994, when The Broadcast Tapes of Dr. Peter was nominated for an Academy Award®, Paperny Entertainment’s commitment to producing quality programming has allowed the company to develop and grow into the multi-faceted, prolific operation it is today.

From conceptualization through development, to production, post production and distribution, Paperny Entertainment provides a full range of state-of-the-art production services.

None of this would be possible without the dedication and commitment of our hugely talented team. Everyone from our front office manager to our researchers, coordinators, business affairs staff, producers, directors, editors and accountants contributes to the success of our company. Each member of the Paperny Entertainment team feels a personal connection to every one of our projects, and that attention to detail shines through in the overall quality of our shows.
